(Helen Bond) Further to Larry’s earlier blog, I’d like to express my thanks to him for all the work he’s put into CSCO over the last few years. I can’t help feeling rather daunted at the prospect of assuming the directorship of the Centre, and I’m certainly aware of what an enormous privilege it is.
We have a few ideas for the coming year, but I’d like to announce only one at the moment – a day in honour of Prof Larry W. Hurtado on 7th October 2011, 10am – 4 pm. We’ve invited a distinguished list of speakers – Profs Richard Bauckham, Tommy Wasserman and Thomas Kraus – all of whom will engage with Larry’s work in the areas of early high Christology, text criticism and early Christian manuscripts. Its likely to be a lively and engaging discussion, and we might even let Larry offer some kind of a response . . . As always, all are welcome. More details to follow.
